lees have arlington back. of course the bad news for the lees is there were 16,000 tombs, such as a practical matter they couldn't come back to live here. so they settled with the government for fair market dalia. $150,000, 1100 acres of prime real estate and 16,000 tombs on the banks of the potomac river. the great irony is when custis leaves signed the estate over, the title over to the federal government, custis lee on one side assigning the title and all the other side was the secretary of the war, robert todd lincoln, the son of abraham lincoln, you had a son of lee and some of lincoln agreeing on something and i would say that that was the beginning of some hope that we could reunite to the north and south again. it took awhile, but that was the beginning of the reunion.
